Speaker: Dr. Neelima Gupta, Assoc. Prof., Department of Chemistry, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur

 

The institutions of higher education in India are facing crucial challenge in creating, nurturing and maintaining the level of quality research. To operationalize this vision, there is need to train, reorient and reactivate the students on research methodology. The current workshop is an effort to enrich the students on research methodology.

The session started with the welcome of Dr. Neelima Gupta. She delivered lecture covering the various aspects of research methodology and scientific writing to incorporate the research acumen among the students.  She stated that “if it is not published, it is not science.” Science is the collection of observations, their interpretation and applications, which is converted in different forms of communication. The important aspect of scientific writing is that we must remember about reader while writing i.e. if we are successful in delivering our point of work to the reader then it is a good writing. In a good article there should be a flow in scientific article. In scientific writing, the introduction must be interesting and this interest must be followed up to the conclusion. Every part of an article is important.

She categorized scientific publications in three types- Primary, Secondary, Tertiary publications and explained all the components. She also explained the procedure for the selection of an appropriate journal for submission of a manuscript, submission procedure and their editorial procedure. We can select a journal for paper submission on basis of their publishers, subject and impact factor. After submission the manuscript is reviewed by the reviewers associated with that journal. They check for the validity of approach, originality, significance of report finding, interest, timeliness to scientific community and clarity.

Further she explained the writing of a review article. The schematic layout for preparation of review article is-

1. Collection of data

2. Collection of related literature

3. Writing an outline

4. Writing first draft

5. Use of highly specific scientific language

6. Revision and re-writing

7. Proof reading word by word

At the end, she also emphasized the importance of copyright and plagiarism.

Outcome of the seminar: After the seminar the students were acquainted with the concept of Research and scientific articles. Research scholars were able to understand different steps to write a review article.

Speaker: Dr. Pooran Chand, C.E.O., Therachem Research Medilab Pvt. Ltd., Jaipur

 

Each year a couple of dozen new drugs licensed for use. The research and development journey of those new drugs that make it to market will have taken around 7-12 years. Thus to acquint students better with the drug development, this seminar was organized.

The session started with the welcome of Dr. Pooran Chand. He introduced the concept of Peramivir as it works by preventing an enzyme in the body from releasing virus from infected cells so Peramivir is used to treat influenza in adults who have had flu symptoms for up to 2 days.

He stated that it is usually given as a single dose. The medicine should be given within the first 2 days of when flu symptoms start. Peramivir will not treat an infection caused by bacteria or fungus. He also explained the side effect of Peramivir like confusion, hallucinations, unusual behavior or thoughts. Basically it is an anti viral drug developed by biocryst pharmaceuticals for the treatment of influenza. It is a neuraminidase inhibitor, acting as a transition state analogue Inhibitor of influenza neuraminidase and thereby preventing new viruses from emerging from infected cells.  It is approved for intravenous administration.

He ended lecture with some little things which we have to take care during oral conception of drugs. It was greatly reaccepted by the students, research scholars and faculty members.

The students were acquainted with the development of a drug with the given example of Peramivir-BCX 1812.
